Funny how a simple technology called Caller ID would make you think of something rewarding to life’s design.
The phone rings and the Caller ID displays ‘Name Not Found’ the replied thought was ‘call not answered’. “It’s that simple!” I chuckled.
The caller wanted an answer without identifying his or herself. I reflected on how I do that at times. How I want God to answer me with precision and clarity, but I talk in circles and doubtfully believe. I then realized I must never go to God again without revealing my identity, my vulnerability, my ups and downs, my hurts, my desires or I risk the chance my call get delayed or not answered at all.
I understand the principle now of coming to God in spirit and truth. I understand there’s something mighty and magnificent in making your name found for all to see and talk about. If they decide to answer or not, they will always know you called for you’ve made your presence known and not hidden your identity.
“I am no longer afraid for you to see my identity, but are you afraid to answer?”
Show off now, it’s time the world take notice of your true identity!
Have you ever said the words I’m tired of going through the same things over and over? Tired of repeating different situations but having the same outcome? This is for you!!
It’s amazing what you can learn when you take time to sit back, be quiet and observe. I was listening to a friend of mine talk, but the only word that kept replaying in my head was forgive. Now my friend never spoke that word but I only heard that word. Crazy right???
“Forgive so that you can move forward. You’re only repeating because you refuse to let it all go. You must forgive for your deliverance and my promise to manifest. I will give you the desires of your heart if you will give me your forgiveness” God whispered.
“Who have I not forgiven? Who is standing between me and my destiny? Who is keeping me from the promise? God who is it?” I asked sincerely.
“It’s you!” He replied “Forgive it, let it all go, move on, don’t hold back anymore. No one can hurt you, they are actually hurting me and I will repay them. I wish to forgive you, but I can’t when you harbor on the past. Move out of the way and stop being fooled to believe you can’t forget. I don’t remember your sins, just your repentance and since you’re created in my image you are JUST LIKE ME!”
I sat in awe again, but with great revelation and freedom. You know this is for you and God knows too.
GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY AND FORGIVE! Ask whatever you will with a pure heart of forgiveness and you shall receive bountifully!
Over and over he tries to break me. But the more he tries, the more God shows and tell me of my creation. I’m fearfully and wonderfully made in HIS image. Whom shall I fear or be afraid? I’m in awe of God’s magnificent work and with this knowledge HE shall forever be glorified.
My prayer today,
Lord, please keep a guard over my lips so that I speak no evil. Keep my heart compassionate so that I do no evil. Keep my troubles few and far so that I fear no evil. God thanks for preparing a table before me in the presence of my enemies and the one who tries to break me. You continue to anoint my head with oil, and allow my cup to run over. The rain is pouring and my tears are like the rain. My heart is troubled with the confusion and complexity of my environment, but I know it’s not the end. It’s the beginning of something precious, solid, and grounded in truth. I can not be broken, but the bend sometimes takes a toll on me. I can not be broken, but the fold some days enslave me. I can not be broken, but the trials overwhelm me. It’s all good either way God for I know the creation of me!!!
Don’t allow anyone to break you especially when they had no part in creating you!
I was thinking about animals and instincts after speaking with my cousin and his wife. He seems to enjoy the wild life; birds, sharks, sting rays and all kind of dogs. In the midst of the conversation I began thinking of how animals go after their food. They go on a hunt, they actually PREY on it. The baby cubs are trained to be very quiet, breathe easily, and duck lowly. In doing this the predator is clueless of the fact they are being preyed upon. After the cub preys it pounces, meaning it takes a leap of faith and goes full force after what it desires and usually get’s the very thing they’ve preyed after.
The same thing with us (humans). I know you’ve been told before eating a meal to pray over your food and if you don’t it tends to follow destructive behavior all coming for you! My mother would slap the food out of my mouth before my tongue can taste its savor. All of that to say you definitely had to pray before eating a meal in our home. When we pray we close our eyes, bow our heads, and thank God for the meal before us. After it’s all said and done we believe the food is not harmful and go for it; devouring everything before us.
I’m in awe of how God will take that which is simple and blow my mind.
A blue jay was born in the backyard and he made a loud screech when his wings failed him. His mother came flying in, they exchanged screeches and she flew off. Within the half hour the mother returned and feed her baby from her beak. The baby bluejay gained strength and took off in flight. I sat in amazement!
God does that same thing for HIS children. Once we screech HE hears it and comes to our aid.
HE doesn’t allow us to lack any good thing! Enjoy your holiday and PRAY to avoid being PREY!
It’s Friday and I know a secret you can use for the rest of your days!!! I don’t want you to just Thank God it’s Friday but thank God everyday is like Friday!!! I’m gonna share it with you today-)
In the moment you ask, and believe, and know you already have it in the unseen, the entire Universe shifts to bring it into the seen. You must act, speak, and think, as though you are receiving it now. Why? The Universe is a mirror, and the law of attraction is mirroring back to you your dominant thoughts. So doesn’t it make sense that you have to see yourself as receiving it? If your thoughts contain noticing you do not have it yet, you will continue to attract not having it yet. You must believe you have it already. You must believe you have received it. You have to emit the feeling frequency of having received it, to bring those pictures back as your life. When you do that, the law of attraction will powerfully move all circumstances, people, and events, for you to receive.
“You can have what you want-if you know how to form the mold for it in your own thoughts“.
It starts within the mind! What are you thinking this Friday?
This message is for you!
The one who desires to get the promise in full. The one who waited patiently, prayed earnestly, spoke boldly, believed fully. This is for you. The one who continues to seek HIS face, love on others, turn the other cheek, and plant the seeds. This is for you. The one who believes that all things are possible through Christ. The one who dreams and steps out on faith. The one who has limited friends, but plenty of enemies; not because you’re a bad person, but simply because you know that God is for you and more than the world against you.
This time is crucial for you.
You must stay obedient to HIS voice. Answer when HE calls. Don’t turn to the left or the right, but stay on the path. It’s about to get rough and the temptations will be strong, but God is guiding you through it all.
Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed. Do not be ashamed for you will not be disgraced. Do not be disgraced for God loves you beyond what you believe.
When God is for you, who can be against you? And even if they stand strong God is stronger!!! Lift up your head…..
If you can learn to be a hole in the wall, things will happen through you, not to you. (John Randolph Price)
Nothing ever happens to a hole in the wall. Everything passes through it. Things happen around it. Things happen above it and below it, but the hole remains the same. Even if the hole is covered, it remains; never losing its identity, doing what it was created to do. Nothing gets stuck in a hole in the wall. Everything comes into the hole; nothing stays in the hole; the holes defines itself by being a hole. Things come to the hole in the wall. Light. Air. Darkness. Sound. It takes from everything that comes and willingly allows everything to go. How would you define a hole in the wall? Is it nothing ? Is it everything? Is it something? Is it all things? A hole in the wall cannot be defined; therefore, it cannot be limited. You cannot identify a hole in the wall; it has an identity all its own. Is it a big hole? A small hole? A black hole? A white hole? The only way to define the hole is based on how you see it.
Today I am a hole in life’s wall!
Iyanla Vanzant- Acts Of Faith
Great Tuesday morning my friends! I pray everyone is smiling and in a great spirit of love, joy, peace and walking in continued favor. If you’re not then it’s time you start believing you are because that is your destiny. God didn’t put you on this earth to struggle continually, just temporary, and that’s ONLY to build your faith.
I’ve written before about how I’m a dreamer and dream every night. Well last night I had the funniest dream ever. I dreamt I was dating Kevin Hart (the comedian). I couldn’t tell if the man loved or hate me, but he kept me laughing. He would compliment and tear me down in one breath but I just kept laughing and so did he. We hung out like best friends and enemies. Sounds confusing right? Of course it does but I was elated. I knew he was only joking because that is his line of work. It didn’t matter that most of his material came from our crazy relationship, my children, his children, and our family. I just loved the laughter we shared. Now don’t get me wrong I let him have it too. I’m very witty myself and he could not stop laughing. We went back and forth all day long. It was a continuous roasting in our home.
I’ve never met Kevin Hart and never even thought of dating this man but I thanked God for the dream. I needed to laugh. I know it is great medicine to one’s soul; better than any legally prescribed or illegal injected drug out here. Laughter keeps you young and gives your face an uplift far better than Botox.
Your word for today is laugh! Laugh until your sides hurt, your ears ring, saliva runs from your mouth and tears roll down your eyes. My goal is to laugh all day long. Will you help me in this goal by sharing something funny so we can keep the laughter going!
God is awesome and I love, love, love, HIS sense of humor!!!
Your future is now!
Do you remember back in the day the dream you had over and over again? That one dream in which you said it was too good to happen to you? That one dream that constantly repeats? That one dream that sticks with you throughout all these years? Are you starting to remember? That’s the one that God wants you to believe all over again, this day, right now!
I know it seems crazy to believe it, stupid to think of it, and even worse sharing with dream killers. I know all too well, but when God gives you a dream it is HIS will to see to it that dream comes true. Maybe not in the manner in which you dreamt it but in the contents and message of it. You may be thinking it’s been so long ago, I’m too old now, I forgot the dream in detail, it’s never going to happen, God can’t do all of that, but I beg to differ!
God is asking you today, “Who can stop my plans? I created it all, this big universe! What dream is so great that I can’t bring it to pass? What is bigger than me?” God’s plan can not be stopped due to mistakes, bad choices, sin, past failures, or friends walking out. Nothing can separate you but your disbelief, but even that can be tamed. Keep God first place and honor HIM with your life. He is working behind the scenes and working things out in your favor. Even when you don’t have the courage, God is so loving He will push you into your destiny. It’s divine connections in your future.
You didn’t come from your parents, but thru them from God. Shake off negative comments, curses from the past and the dysfunction of your family. When God puts a blessing on you it doesn’t matter what others say to you or about you. You have the DNA of God, royal blood running thru your veins.
The blessing of God overrides the curse of the enemy. The enemy is not fighting you because of your past, he is fighting because of your future. Where there is no path, create! Change the game
Your future is now! Remember that dream and live it now!
